One of the surprise demos I saw at last year's E3 and Gamescom was A Plague Tale: Innocence from French-based Asobo Studio. Set in the Middle Ages around the Inquisition and the Black Plague, the game features a sister and brother attempting to survive, and flee, one of the darkest periods in history.

Today's video highlights the game-world Asobo has crafted for their adventure-stealth romp, which is utterly gorgeous and terrifying, both at once. This is the second video in a series (find the first one right here), and highlights just how the team worked to craft such an iconic and dark period in history.
After the first episode mainly focused on the young sibling protagonists Amicia and Hugo, Episode 2: “Dark Ages” takes us to the Middle Ages. Discover the process that went into forging a grounded, realistic world, set in one of the darkest hours of human history.

The creative team at Asobo Studio explains their inspiration for the world they built - from visiting real French villages whose layouts, streets and buildings find their roots in medieval times, to taking cues from famous painters to craft the game’s naturalistic lighting. The carefully crafted world serves to enrich the story and the characters, and contributes to creating this moving, emotional experience.
Having seen the game up and running in person, I can say with confidence this is worth checking out and definitely worth keeping an eye on for its May 15 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Watch the new video embedded below.
